Children’s Book Review: “I See Jesus” (Nancy Guthrie and Jenny Blake)

We all know that the Bible is one book made up of two parts, the Old and New Testaments. However, it seems that we view the Bible in terms of those two parts. That both are different in many ways. Sometimes we think that we see two different Gods in those divisions. We sometimes think the God in the OT is an angry one and in NT we see Him as a God of love.

But the truth is, the Bible has one redemptive narrative that keeps both OT and NT intact. These stories point not just to a big picture but a big person. That person is our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. We are not left alone even our kids on how this truth can be understood. The Bible gives us details on this. In this latest book from Bible teacher, Nancy Guthrie, the Bible uses a bridge for the Old Testament stories to Christ. The Bible calls it a shadow.

Children’s Book Review: “Known” Psalms 139 (Sally Lloyd-Jones & Jago)

Psalms 139 talks about the omniscience of God on a personal level. David, inspired by the Holy Spirit, writes how God knows his every step, word and the truth that He is inescapable. Then he goes further by saying that before he was born, God created him in the womb of his mother.

Knowing this truth there are ways to express such awe and admiration for this God of the Bible that leads us to fall down and worship him. For author Sally Lloyd-Jones and artist Jago, expressing such wonder is done by knowing He is our Father.

Children’s Book Review: Christmas Releases of The Good Book Company This October

The Good Book Company recently dropped some Christmas treats for kids. It’s one jolly bunch of books about the birth of Jesus Christ. So today, I’ll be reviewing them here, including sample pages of each book. Click on the title to get yourself a copy.

The Christmas Surprise (Stephanie Williams) – What I like about this book is that it didn’t quickly dive into the birth of Jesus. Rather it starts with a brief look on the “promise” made by God in the Garden of Eden and Israel. It revolves around people being surprised by Christ coming. The ending would be a good springboard to explain the gospel message to kids. The art is nice, it goes along with the story and appeals for the young reader. But the scene with the angel telling Mary about having a baby is a bit exaggerated. Still a good read for you and your kids.

Book Review: “Redemption: The Church in Ancient Times” (Luke H. Davis)

For the past years, I’ve been devouring books on church history. It’s not just out of curiosity nor being a marites that makes me want to pick up a book on this kind of topic. I received review copies that have this topic and this year had interesting new releases of church history. The treatment of the authors varies, but I usually get historical fiction and factual narratives. But in Redemption: The Church in Ancient Times brings the best of two worlds that will make kids open the book and dig in.

“A church uses a confession to declare what it believes and teaches.

The Westminster Confession sums up the teaching of God’s Word..”

Rabbit Holes

Many folks (me included) are complaining of the entertainment content they’re consuming. There is too much woke-ness or SJW on social media, TV, movies and comics they usually indulge. While some parts of these movements do have some good things we should consider, the problem is that mostly they have the bad stuff that sometimes goes against our Christian conviction. So as a pop culture nerd myself, I have to stop reading and watching when these things pops up (aside from the profanity and violence it has). I know there is still good and clean content out here but I need to consider Christian content first. So the question is, what stuff will I consume and where would I go when all of these unnecessary and ungodly agendas permeate to those I’m currently enjoying?
